There are not many activities to do during the winter months of the pandemic. Needless to say, finding winter activities can be challenging to keep fit. If outdoor skating rinks at Harbourfront or Nathan Phillips Square offer a little too much fresh air for your liking, you can enjoy ice skating on some of the indoor skating rinks in Toronto, which are still open at the time of publication. Ice skating during public skate and family skating lessons is free on Toronto’s indoor ice rinks, while participation in skate lessons for adults only costs $ 3.
